I just wanted to give everyone an update on my comment-a-thon that I had for my 5th Belated Gotcha Day. Since Mom totally forgot my Gotcha Day I came up with the idea to have a Comment-A-Thon and make my Mom pay for her shameless mistake. My Mom had agreed to make a $1.00 donation to anyone of the three furends I was raising money for. She agreeded to do this for up to 100 comments, which we knew we would not make since I don't think I have 100 friends yet. But we do know how blogville spreads the word and we were just hoping the word would get out about it.
We didn't meet our goal of 100 comments but we did get 27 comments (the most we have ever got), so we are really excited. Some left comments but didn't tell us who they would like to donate to.
Then one of our furends that we were trying to help (Shy/Khloe), unexpendently went to the Rainbow Bridge last week. Shy/Khloe had touched our hearts since we first heard about her on Two Pitties in The Cities blog. Shy not only touched our hearts but many others and blogville was uniting to raise funds to help her see again. Unfortunately, Shy/Khloe passed away and has left a huge whole in a lot of hearts. But, as we all know when we open our hearts to a rescue furend we are not always sure what we are faced with. We do know that Shy/Khloe was very lucky to have found her fur-ever home and received some of the best LOVE a furend can receive in her short time on this earth. I pray that all that were involved with Shy/Khloe's rescue will find comfort in knowing that she was LOVED by ALL and will not be forgotten anytime soon. We do know that the organizers for her fundraiser are trying to make a decision on what is the best way to utilize the funds that were raised. We know from our Comment-A-Thon Shy/Khloe was leading by a landslide. I have been in contact with Two Pitties in the Cities on how they would like her comment-a-thon donations to be used. They have indicated that they would like it split between the two other furends we were helping.
Since Mom had made a pledge to donate up to $100 for our furends we are still going to do this.
Apollo - Received 5 comments. Trixie, Lily and Sammy Joe held a fundraiser for him.
Shy/Khole - Received 15 comments Two Pitties In The City held a fundraiser for her. Please see their blog and Heather who originally rescued Shy for their updates.
Ronnie/Richie - Received 5 comments Paws of Peace blogville unites to raise funds for Ronnie/Richie.
All in all this is what Mom is going to donate to everyone.
Apollo will receive $25.00 ($5.00 in honor or all their comments they received; $20.00 in Memory of Shy/Khloe = $25.00)
Shy/Khloe - ($15.00 in honor of all her comments she received; $10.00 in Memory of Shy/Khloe - $25.00). In Memory of such a sweet girl who touched the lives of so many in blogville. RIP Shy/Khloe.
Ronnie/Richie ($5.00 in honor of all their comments they received; $20.00 in Memory of Shy/Khloe = $25.00)
Mom is also going to donate $25.00 to the fundraiser for the furends in Japan (World Vets) in memory of Shy/Khloe as well.
So all in all my comment-a-thon was a huge success and I am very excited to have been able to help my furends.
Thanks to everyone that stopped by and wished me a Happy Belated Gotcha Day and helped me help my furends.
